Sliding Star and Shooting Star Bee Spinner Friendship Card

Here is another card I had made for Terri's fabulous Stamping Extravaganza.  I had the privilege of demoing for her there.  These spinner cards are super easy and fun to make.

I used the curved bar for the spinner on this card. Though I do prefer the full circle one, it gets a better spin and seems to be more fun.

Here I used the Bee images.  I LOVE it that I didn't have to fussy cut each one of those little bees.  If I had there would only be 3 on the card.  After that I'm bored or my hands are tired.  But with that little bee die I could cut them out all day long!!!

I also used the "Wink of Stella" on the bees wings.  It gave them that pretty sparkle and made the wings stand out more.

For my background I used the "Softly Falling" embossing folder. I thought the background could use a little bit of texture and since the hexagon folder was retired, this was the best I could do. I do like how it looks on here.  

You can find some tips here.  It's from the full circle one but most of the steps can be used for this curved bar slider too. There's some common mistakes that are made when making these and the tips on that link will help you avoid the.

These are fun and super easy to make. Kids love to play with them too.  Okay, I love to play with them myself!!! It's fun to watch them spin.  I always test my cards to make sure they spin. I give them at least 50 spins!!!  Only because I'm having fun watching the image on the pennies spin around!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
